In the last three years, Duke Energy designed, commissioned and implemented two low inertia microgrids within its distribution system with the ability to island seamlesly without a blackstart. In addition to using the commercially off the shelf available power distribution devices and apparatus, the microgrid utilized distributed applications for the sub-cycle controls and local optimization while harmonizing with the existing control SCADA system. Duke will share lessons learned on grid edge interoperability and also present its current status and future roadmap of its newest microgrid implementation that showcases the scalable and extensible distributed intelligence framework known as Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB).
